Franziska von Hunerbein

Franziska's small section makes great use of space. Using espalier pruning, it is home to 30 types of fruit and berries. Alongside this are vegetable gardens, chickens, a worm farm, and compost brews. A greenhouse is attached to the house, growing food and warming the home. The house features solar panels, which charge an electric car. Franziska is the founder of Crop Swap.
